Awesomenauts 2.13.5 is now live! This will be the final update before we release Awesomenauts: Overdrive in a few weeks, and introduces a large number of balance tweaks!

Highlights include the removal of axis-snapping when playing with a controller on Mac / Linux, removal of mini-knockbacks, and an increased base movement speed for all characters, with a proportional reduction in bonus speed from Space Air Max and other relevant footwear.

There are too many changes to post here, so head over to our forums for the full patch notes:

Capitalizing on an early elimination for Harold's Boys and Girls, American Mojo has moved into the second place of the overall Warzone Weekly leaderboard by winning the third round last weekend. Mature Gaming is still in the lead, having dominated the earlier rounds, but the American Mojo, Harold's Boys and Girls and The Full Monty are close on their heels.

Greetings from the Community Development Team, Defenders! We are now into February of the new year and we continue to press on with the task of providing you new content and changes to enjoy as you defend Etheria. We have a couple of things we would like to share with you today to get you ready for what is coming.

When is the next update?
First up is the question that many are asking and direct at us quite frequently. Our usual response is "soon" since it is hard to get exact dates in place for various reasons. However we would like to let you know that we are targeting mid February to release the public beta.

What is in CDT Update 2?
As many may know by now, we are bringing Embermount Volcano over from DDE. Along with the new map comes a new tavern theme, new enemy, new weapons, accessories and pets. Here comes one of the pets trotting in now.

There are also plenty of QoL fixes and some rebalancing of a few towers that have needed it.

How can I help?
Help us test! This update is packed full of content and changes that need to be checked by you, the community. We would love to think that the release will be perfect, but we know bugs happen. So please give it a good run through when it is released and report any issues back to us.

Dev Help Needed!
We are in need of a visual effects artist. While the team is great at many things, this is one area where we could use some help. If there is someone in the community who is willing to share their talents in creating visual effects with Unreal Cascade, we would be grateful to have you on the team. The community would be grateful too.

New Community Event: Depths and Bubbles Event
There is a new event planned for Feb 12th - 14th. Please check out the details in the Depths and Bubbles thread.

More to Come
There is definitely much more come. Be on the lookout for futher news and opportunites for you to vote and share your opinions about what you think will make Etheria even better. We are already planning Update 3 for you so please keep the ideas flowing and submitting them to us.

I will leave you now with a couple of screenshots from the upcoming Update 2 for you to enjoy and see what is coming your way.

Happy Defending!!!

Hi everyone. Thanks for all your support for this game over the last four years. Thanks for all the kind messages and amazing fanart.

Today I'm releasing the Lone Survivor Original Soundtrack as DLC on Steam, for all those who've asked. The soundtrack has sold really well elsewhere and in future I plan to release it via more outlets, but I know a lot of fans would like to see it on Steam, and so I'm bringing it here first.

It's received a lot of praise from the gaming press and the fans, finding itself in some 'best of year' lists and so on. I'm constantly humbled by the kind words people have, so thank you all once again.

Over the last four years I've primarily been working on music, but also on games. I hope to have a new game to show you all within the next four... :)

Hope you have a great 2016!
